Penny decided to serve on the board of Ronald McDonald House Charities in 2014 after having been a Trustee of the Evelina Family Trust for many years. The Evelina Family Trust originally ran the Ronald McDonald House at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital. Penny has a background in Law and has been a city based professional, on the boards of three London Insurance Market Companies. Penny comes with the experience of working with businesses on their Corporate Social Responsibility schemes, liaising with them on not only their financial but also their voluntary support. A key aspect of Ronald McDonald House Charities is that it can relate to everyone and Penny believes this is a strong reason as to why any business can help in some way.
